Love, Is What's Forbidden

"i dont know why im paired up with you", sam says refusing to look up from her book. "You think this is fun for me?! Trust me im more confused about this than you are",marco says refusing to look at what might ruin his reputation of being a badass-jock everybody thinks he is. A couple minutes pass for what seems to be forever and sam finally decides to look up. marco catches her gaze and kneels down to her level,"what kind of book are you reading?", he puts his hand on hers and she snatches it away. "it's the type of book with words in it", she says sarcastically. "Seriously what's your problem, everytime i try and talk to you, your always acting like a snob". She looks at him in the eyes then looks away," im trying to stay away from boys like you that's all". He gets up and leans up against the wall," i'm not like those other guys". she rises up to his level,"oh really, then what type of guy are you?"..


8. Unfinished Business

They decided to separate in the parking lot

Marco began thinking about where they'll go from here. He can finally call the girl that he hated, his and the feelings were just everywhere.


He began smiling on his way to his car and heard a car pull up behind him. When he turned around.. All he saw was pitch-black...


*mumbles*..... *whispers*.....

Marco hears a familiar voice and calms down a bit. But receives a blow to the stomach and another one to the ribs. His eyes became heavier and heavier as he tries to acknowledge who was surrounding him. The fighter in him gets up after being thrown on the ground and starts swinging, he didn't care who he hit. He gets another blow to the face and then.. he just drops.


​He wakes up at the sound of his younger brother by his side, handing a glass of water to him along with an aspirin. "Does ma know how I got here?", in response he nods, "she's the one that found you and took you here.."

"Carlos..", Marco looks at the doorway to see his mother standing there, she looked exhausted. "Could we have a moment please Carlos? Your breakfast is downstairs", Carlos licks his lips and rushes to the kitchen.  She looks back and looks at where the door used to be, "I forgot I had the door taken down". Marco shrugs, he already knew what she wanted to talk about and unfortunately, he didn't want to talk .. just sleep. "You should've never had that taken down, now we can't have that talk you wanted to have". "why? So you can continue to have little chicken heads in and out my house??"

​"I don't have chi-"

​"I've seen them Marco..". She watches her son struggle to lift a muscle and feels a tear slide down her cheek, "I need you to stop this, all of it .. You hear me?!". He looks down to a pool of his blood on the rug, quickly grabs the t-shirt closest to him and presses it against his mouth, "what are you talking about?", he muffled.​


​"Ay dio, don't start with me Marc. You know what i'm talking about, I can't handle another death in this family! You know what happened to your father you're turning out just like him!"


​"I am nothing like that pendejo ma! NOTHING! Stop comparing me to him!".

​She bangs on his dresser and looks at him, "your father is what helped us get here. Despite all the bullshit he put this family through, he was the light in ever dark situation. He left.. he had no choice, you wouldn't understand". She flinches when Marco finally gets up, "you see that? He left us ! Who beats the shit out of his own wife and leaves her with 4 kids and one on the way?! NOW I have to be the man of the house because the jackass couldn't handle it no more". She slaps him and collapses to the floor and broke down. "I can't do this", Marco storms out the room, keys in hand. He had no thought of where he was going, but he planned on going wherever his mind took him.
